Woman allegedly strangled by former naval officer

A young woman was allegedly strangled to death by her fiancé, who is a former navy officer at a guest house in Sagar Pur area of South West Delhi, police said today.

The body of the deceased, identified as Priyanka Kumari was found at a guest house room in the area yesterday morning.

"She had checked in the guest house on Sunday along with Mohit. The room was booked by Mohit and he had even introduced Priyanka as her wife," said a police official.

In the morning, when nobody responded from inside the room, guest house authorities broke open the door only to find Priyanka's body lying on the bed.

CCTV footage showed Mohit leaving the guest house on Sunday evening.

"Initial investigations have revealed that Mohit and Priyanka were engaged some time back. But later it was learnt by Priyanka's family that Mohit had some behavioral issues. Meanwhile, he also lost his job," the official said.

Although the two were in touch but marriage looked a remote possibility. It seems that the two had an altercation over the issue and Mohit killed Priyanka in a fit of rage, police said.

A case under section 302 has been registered and a manhunt has been launched to nab Mohit. The girl lived in the same area and was preparing for competitive exams.
